The Walrus launches book imprint with limited edition short story by Margaret Atwood

The Walrus magazine is launching a book imprint with an original short story by author Margaret Atwood. The 32-page book is printed by Coach House Press and is available only to subscribers of The Walrus magazine in its print, digital or tablet iterations. The cost of the book plus a 10- issue annual subscription is $35.
I Dream of Zenia with the Bright Red Teeth is designed by Brian Morgan, art director of The Walrus, with a cover pattern by Marian Bantjes. (The story will later appear in the summer reading issue of the magazine.) 
The first 100 copies of the limited 2,000 print run will be signed and numbered by Atwood  and the book features Zenia, one of Atwood's memorable characters from her best-seller The Robber Bride.
"We're thrilled to launch The Walrus Books with a short story by Margaret Atwood, who is not only generous and supportive of the work of the Walrus Foundation but is also having herself a great time in this short story," says Shelley Ambrose, co-publisher of The Walrus and executive director of the Walrus Foundation. "Whether or not you have read The Robber Bride, you'll love this crafty, twisty, turny tale of Zenia, the character who Atwood has always said she identifies with the most."
